Warm Audio WA47jr Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

Description:

The WA-47jr is an FET transformerless version of the highly renowned classic '47 microphone that has been used on countless hit records for over 50 years. The WA-47jr is fully discrete, has 3 polar patterns and is designed for pro studio, home studio, live, and broadcast applications. The WA-47jr sounds great on vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, acoustic/electric bass, drums, piano, strings, brass/woodwind instruments, and an array of other sources.

The WA-47jr utilizes a custom k47 style capsule reproduction, designed with the same hole pattern and frequency response as the vintage design. Warm's version of this capsule is carefully manufactured by an Australian capsule manufacturer with careful precision and repeat-ability that allows the most important sonic piece of the classic mic to be heard and influence the tone and signature of the WA-47jr. The WA47jr's low-noise and discrete signal path, when paired with this excellent true '47 style capsule, allows it to obtain a very similar tone to the classic '47 microphone, but at a much lower price tag. The WA-47jr utilizes the same k47 style capsule found in the flagship WA-47 tube condenser microphone.

The WA-47jr circuit uses high quality Toshiba FETs, Wima film capacitors and Panasonic electrolytic capacitors. The circuit is modernized and more simple than the classic '47 tube microphone, but the components and circuitry are top-notch, and have a sound quality and tone that punches far above anything in this price range.
